    hey, long time no visit.

    was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to where i could find some online notes with regards to studying bonding orbital’s, the atom and energy levels ( with regard mostly to spectrum and detection methods) and stuff like that. Fundamental stuff, that im finding hard to grasp.

    I’m really not liking the teaching method of my lecturer or his notes, and would like a second reference to compliment them, along with my text book.

    Cheers, Damien.

    Edit: even a good small specialised textbook would also be welcome.

    For organic chemistry you could try the resources here:

    For more fundamental chemical principles you can try here:

    I am not certain how much access you will have to the various course materials. Some access may be restricted if you don't buy the course CD. My recollection is that WHFreeman's online texts provide a lot of self-help material (summaries, quizzes, animations to explain concepts) for free, but my recollection isn't as good as it once was.

    You can surf around for other chemistry topics here:

    If you look around used bookstore you can often find 10-20 year old chemistry textbooks that originally cost $100+ for sale for a few dollars.

    my text book doesn't seem to have exactly what I'm looking for, (ha its not good then so)

    it could be under a different heading. when i posted mind you, i was nowhere near the library (very good here in UCD), and i hadn't received my grant.

    now i need to buy a "more detailed" text book. hmph. according to my lecturers. the very same that recommended the first one.
